Fremont-based Great Lakes Bee Company to provide honey products for Whole Foods
When Whole Foods opens its first West Michigan store in Kentwood, on Wednesday, August 17, it will feature a variety of local products including Hasselman’s Honey brand and honey infusions produced by Fremont’s Great Lakes Bee Company (GLBC). GLBC has been in operation for nearly 50 years. All GLBC honey is collected from hives around Newaygo County, a region that specializes in honey production due to its unique environment that GLBC bees forage on, producing 150,000 pounds of Michigan honey each year.
As a local Whole Foods vendor, GLBC will have its original Hasselman’s Honey and 3 oz. flavored honey infusions available for purchase inside the new store. Whole Foods is set to open at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17, in the Radcliff Plaza shopping center, 2897 Radcliff Ave SE, in Kentwood.
Genji LeClair, co-owner of GLBC, can be available onsite between 2-4 p.m. during the store’s opening day to share about bringing GLBC’s Hasselman’s hometown honey into the world’s leading natural and organic grocer.

But where to find this local honey in Fremont? Not Meijer. Not Family Fare. Only at Health Smart. Glad I found it there so I didn't have to go to Whole Foods in GR for Newaygo Co honey!
